Two dogs were reunited after nearly three decades separated by time and distance.
The two dogs, named Ivan and Mummy, were separated in 2014 after more than 25 years separated by the same time and location.
“We were in a lot of pain, and our lives were going to change, and I don’t know how it happened, I mean we were just trying to keep our heads together and stay together,” said Ivan, who lives in a Toronto suburb.
Ivan’s brother Mummy is currently in a Calgary shelter, and he said they had a “good laugh” at the reunion.
Mummy, a black Labrador Retriever, had been separated from his family for more then 10 years.
He said his family had to find new homes, as his father died of cancer.
After more than two decades of separation, Ivan and his sister and mother decided to adopt Ivan.
They started with a home and a home, and a new dog, and Ivan’s mother helped them find a home.
It was a rough start for Ivan and their family.
“It was difficult to be a new parent, especially for a young family,” he said.
For his part, Ivan was nervous at the start.
His mother said she knew she was going to be an aunt and uncle, and that they wouldn’t be able to get a job or a job, he said, adding that she didn’t understand why he was nervous.
In the end, he and his family were able to adopt him.
Immediately, Ivan said he was overwhelmed by the support he received from family and friends.
My heart is so full, he told CBC News, “I was so scared to come home.
I felt I didn’t have a home anymore.”
“I just kept praying that my family would see the good in me and they would give me a home,” he added.
However, the two dogs are not alone.
More than 10,000 people have signed a petition calling for Ivan’s release, and several other dogs in the same situation are currently in foster care in Toronto, where they’re being cared for by people like his parents.
One of them is a boxer named Chavo.
Chavos family is currently on a mission to reunite all of the dogs who have been separated.
Chavo has also been reunited with his family, but their journey has taken longer than Ivan’s.
There are now more than 2,000 dogs and cats in foster homes in Toronto.
At the end of August, Chavoes owner, Michael Bess, was able to reunify the dogs in a group.
But when the dogs were finally reunited, he says they still weren’t ready to go back to their original home.
“It’s just a process, it’s hard,” he told ABC News.
Bess hopes to get Chavs dogs back to his family soon.
